This continues to be one of my favorite mid-priced rose sparkling wines, and in my opinion it is as good or better than many others going for twice the price.
Served very cold from an ice bath. Plenty of effervescence on opening. Fine bubble streams - long lasting. Blush pink, light salmon color. A fair amount of yeast. Great fruit - strawberry, apple, perhaps some tropical fruit. Medium, appropriate acid. Light alcohol. Light-plus sweet - brut. Excellent balance overall. A 2008, and definitely drinking very well with no signs of fading at this point.
Nicely balanced and floral, one could say "expected" for a Rose. The 33% Chard seemed prominent, but...eh. Really fine with Chicken piccata. $15 from the Heritage auction...huge win for several Schramberg bottles.
Salmon color with a fine bead. Low-intensity strawberry nose. Creamy, very effervescent moose. Tart cranberry and strawberry on the palate. Comes across as too sweet. Medium acidity. Medium-length tart finish. Pretty, simple wine, which would benefit from more acidity and less sweetness. Good.
